Youth and the Law, 4th Edition is a comprehensive overview of the ways in which youth interact with criminal law and the criminal justice system in Canada. Various social science theories and models are applied to doctrinal law in order to situate the law in its social context and provide readers with a thorough understanding of youth justice.

This edition not only features a new chapter on youth corrections, but also includes new discussions surrounding common offences, risk factors, and societal responses to youth in conflict with the law. Additionally, this text examines issues such as adult sentencing, the Ashley Smith case, honour killings, and the over-representation of marginalized groups in the youth system.

With this complete coverage, readers will have a wide range of perspectives on each part of the process, from police procedures to trials and sentencing to rehabilitation.
